North-East To Produce New PDP Chairman Tomorrow

Leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are to reach a consensus Tuesday, on who replaces Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, as the party’s national chairman. Sources said the meeting will hold in Gombe, where the new chairman will emerge.

Mu’azu, a former governor of Bauchi State resigned as PDP national chairman on May 20, 2015, after the party lost the presidential elections.
His deputy, Prince Uche Secondus took over in acting capacity pending a replacement from the North-East.
Misunderstanding in the party reached a record high last week, following the emergence of three national chairmen, as an aftermath of a legal tussle. They included Secondus; the party’s national secretary, Prof. Adewale Oladipo, who was directed by the PDP Governors Forum to take over and Barr Ahmed Gulak, a one-time special adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan.
However, leaders of the PDP from the North-East have resolved to hold a meeting tomorrow, where a trusted and credible party stalwart would be accepted and sent to the national leadership of the party for approval.
It was gathered that various organs of the PDP, including the National Executive Committee (NEC), Board of Trustees (BoT) and the National Caucus ?are also warming up to meet this week in order to look into the issue of the party’s chairmanship, and possibly approve the appointment of whoever emerges from the North-East.
